who only add here to the law but to those who follow the faith of abraham who is the father of all of us as it is written. i have made you father of many nations. he is our father in the sight of god in whom he believes who gives life to the dead and calls into being what does not exist. he believes hope against hope that he would become the father and nation according to what he did, thus shall your descendants be. that is why it was credited to him as righteousness. ♪

2:18 am
joseph said as the angel of the lord commanded him and took mary as his wife, these words already point to the mission which god entrusts to joseph. he has to be the protector. the protector of mary and jesus. this protection is extended to the church as blessed john paul ii pointed out. just as st. joseph will take care of mary and dedicated himself to jesus christ's suffering. likewise he watches over his
2:19 am
body of the church of which the virgin mary is an example and a model. how does joseph exercise his role as a protector? discreetly, humbly, in silence. with his healing presence and complete fidelity even when he finds it hard to understand. mary until 12-year-old jesus in the temple of jerusalem found he is there with loving care next to mary his wife in good times and bad times through the journey through the senses and in the exodus and joyful hours
2:20 am
is a frantic search for the child in the temple. later in the light in their home in nazareth in the workshop where he taught his trade to jesus. how does joseph respond as protector of mary protector of the church by being constantly attentive to god, open to the signs and receptive to god's plans not just to his own. this is what god asks of david as we heard in the first reading god does not want built by land but he wants faithfulness to his world, to his plan.
2:21 am
it is god himself who heals the house from living stone sealed by this. joseph is a protector because he is able to hear god's voice. and is guided by god's will and for this reason he's all the more sensitive to the people entrusted by faith he can look at things realistically and he's in touch with his surroundings. him, dear friends, we learn how to respond to god's call ready and willingly. we also see the core of christian vocation which is
2:22 am
christ. let us protect christ in our lives so we can protect others, so that we can protect creation. for the patient of being a protector however is not just something involving christians alone. it has a dimension which comes before. it is simply human. it involves everyone. it means protecting all creation, the beauty of the creator world as the book of genesis tells us in st. francis showed us, it means respecting each and every one of god's creatures, and the environment in which we live, it means protecting people, taking care of everyone with love,
2:23 am
especially the children, the elderly. those who are fragile and who are always left in the periphery of our hearts. it means taking care of one another within our families as wives take care of each other and then as parents they take care of their children, and then over time the children themselves will take care of their parents. it means living friendship with sincerity since they are a way of protecting each other in trust, respect and goodness. in the end everything has been entrusted to our protection as men. it is a responsibility that
2:24 am
involves all of us. the protectors of god's gift. whenever human beings fail to live up to this responsibility, whenever we fail to take care of creation and our brothers and sisters then the ways open to destruction, destruction of hearts that are hardened and every period of history unfortunately there are parents who fought death and countenance of men and women. i would like to ask all of those who hold positions of responsibility in the economic political and social world to all of the men and women of goodwill, let us be protectors
2:25 am
of creation, protectors of god's plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another in the environment. let us not allow destruction and death to accompany the advance of this world of ours but to be protectors we also need to keep watch over ourselves. let us remember that hatred, envy and pride de file our lives. the protector are also watching over our emotion, our hearts because they are the very seed of good and evil intentions.
2:26 am
intentions that build up and tear down. we must not be afraid of goodness and not even of tenderness and here i would like to add another comment. taking care, protecting requires goodness. it calls for tenderness in the book st. joseph appears a strong and brave man and working man. yes in his heart we also see great tenderness which is not the virtue of the weak, rather the opposite. it is a sign of trend of spirit and ability for concern and the passion for true openness to others. ability to love. we must not be afraid of
2:27 am
goodness, of tenderness. today, together with st. joseph we are celebrating the beginning of the ministry of the new bishop of rome the successor of peter which also involves a certain power. certainly jesus christ conferred power upon peter. but what sort of power was it? jesus had three questions to peter about love are followed by three commands. feed my little sheep, let us never forget that authentic power is service.
2:28 am
the pope as well would exercise power must enter evermore follow into that service through radiant combination on the cross. must be inspired the lowly and faithful service which mark st. joseph and like him, he wwe mus open his arms to protect all of god's people and embrace with tender affection the hole of humanity especially the poorest, the peakesweakest, the smallest as matthew describes as the final judgment on love, the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the maeek and the sic and those in prison only those who serve with love are able to protect. in the second reading st. paul
2:29 am
speaks of abraham who hoping against hope believed. strong today, too abid such darkness, we need to see the light of hope and to be the one to bring hope to others, to protect creation, every man and every woman with a tender look, a look of love. this is to open the pope it is to let light break through the heavy crowds. it is to bring the word of hope. for believers for as christians like abraham, like st. joseph, the hope that we bring is set
2:30 am
against the horizon of god which has opened up before us in christ. it is built on the rock which is god to protect jesus with mary, to protect the whole of creation, to protect each person, especially the poorest, to protect ourselves. this is a service that the bishop of rome is called upon to carry out. yet one to which all of us are called upon to carry out so that the hope will shine brightly let us protect with love all that god has given us. i implore the procession of virgin mary st. joseph, saint peter paul, st. francis so the holy spirit may accompany my ministry. and i ask all of you to pray for

i don't believe there's been a time when you can switch from television channel to television channel around the world since probably 2005 that people who do not go church or are not of faith that you can tune into this. whether you are of faith or not it is a spectacular presentation and gorgeous ceremony and maybe an opportunity for the catholic church to bring people into the faith or even more so to remind those who may not be faithful of what is possible and the mentsse that is there if you choose to hear it. >> i think the beauty of what we are seeing is a reminder to people life is about beauty. what is beautiful and true is what we strife for. the revelation of jesus christ in the catholic faith incarnates
